An eyes-closed lap of Assen22/06/2017
Red Bull KTM Ajo rider Bo Bendsneyder accepts the challenge of undertaking a mental lap of ‘The Cathedral of Motorcycle Racing.’ Will he be able to match his own lap time?
World Championship riders know the circuits on the calendar off by heart, down to the smallest detail. To see just how much this is true, one day before getting onboard his KTM and starting his second Dutch TT, Bo Bendsneyder accepts the challenge of performing a lap of the TT Circuit Assen with his eyes closed. Seated and with the stopwatch alongside him, the Dutchman describes the track corner-by-corner, with the aim of matching his best lap there of 1:42.655. Will he do it? Will he lower his best time?
Watch Bendsneyder’s attempt, then try it yourself.
